    Well, I cut alot of hemlock for the shoulder season, meaning this fall and next spring. Will finish splitting it up this Saturday.
    My question is, will it be seasoned enough for this fall? I can't imagine why not, but I though I would ask.

    Good question ... since I am in the same situation. I figured since it is a soft wood it will be plenty seasoned by the time autumn comes around.

    I have found that hemlock seasons pretty quickly. I am sure that depends on your wind/sun exposure blah blah blah.
